Summary
The seven tales that comprise this collection were written to disturb and provoke. The stories are interwoven and have an edgy tone reminiscent of Edgar Allen Poe at his most dazzling and thought-provoking. They are amoral, vindictive and unforgiving.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: This collection of interwoven stories is a gripping, haunting read, with an edgy tone reminiscent of Edgar Allen Poe at his most dazzling and thought-provoking. Its dark, disquieting images linger long after the book itself is finished. 'Duncker is a mistress of suspense ...a writer of fascinating versatility. Her preoccupations - sex, power, obsession, archaeology, perversion, revenge, food - are always consuming, never prosaic. Seven Tales of Sex and Death is a febrile, fascinating, disquieting read. It asserts itself for what it is: serious stuff, to be read in one gulp and then mulled over for days' MAGGIE O'FARRELL, Independent
